    You never grow accustomed to being beaten by a short head. 16/1 each way tip Mayleaf Shine was beaten by that margin on Friday. But that's why I always advocate each way bets at such odds. Unlucky to just finish second at Ayr, at least we punters still made profit from the race.

    Earlier in the day my 7/4 Newbury NAP, Dirty Rascal, justified my confidence when winning at SP odds of 11/10.

    The best value winner was Exec Chef. Available at odds as big as 14/1 the night before racing - when members are advised . . .

    Last weekend proved to be a mixed bag and, sadly, the last day that we shall see two very fine horses take to the track.

  • The midweek winning bets included the draw between Ipswich and Brentford at a nice price of 11/4. There were also wins for Leeds at 10/11, Atletico Madrid at 4/5, Middlebrough at 5/11 and both teams to score Liverpool v PSG at odds of 4/9.

    Sheffield United could only draw so let down one of my accumulators. Cristiano Ronaldo getting sent off and Shakthar Donestk failing to win their game brought down the other one. Such is life. Onwards.

    So who still fancies Manchester City to win the Champions League? Not me. But then I'm . . .
